Description Edit | History

A sequel to Arclight's deckbuilding game Barba*Rossa (ばるば★ろっさ), it depicts the first battle of El Alamein during WWII, as the Axis powers thrust through Africa to conquer Alexandria. Like its predecessor, the artwork in El*Alamein consists of scantily clad anime girls.

Although it's technically possible to use the cards in both sets together, El*Alamein is first and foremost a game on its own, and is better described as a "compatible sequel" than a standalone expansion.

2 Mini Glossary, Icon and Card Type Guide
Playaid cards with definitions for card keywords and game concepts (useful combined with the Combat Zone Playaid). Reverse side has the card icons reminder and the colour coding of the different card types. Print doublesided.
English
2013-06-06
2 Combat Zone Playaid/mat
Playaid for each player with the turn sequence and space for the draw and discard deck. Fits in box. Print doublesided (the reverse sides are for right- and left- handed players). Added the Unique cards reminder. Slightly modified the Counterattack wording so it consistently uses the game concepts (and not their technical execution).
English
2013-06-02
3 War Zone Playmat
Playmat for the location of all the shared decks in the game. Awkward size to print out, but it can be folded (along the tiny fold markers, in a harmonica fashion) to fit in the box. Updated British Army Deck (with the El Alamein city reminder).
